A decade ago, views - opinions- even a germinating concept, such as this would have been deemed bizarre; not just in regards to a child entertaining such thoughts, but that a book such as this would ever be considered published...
Perhaps all this "soft-core" infused datum spewing from ALL medium (television, internet, radio) over the last several generations has become, what Carl Jung would say, " ..A negative influence on the collective conscience."

Sure, it's ok if boys want to wear dresses...until it's your boy. Being accepting of an abstract concept is very different from living with it and confronting your own expectations. Good for anyone interested in reading about raising kids or modern gender issues.

This mother's real problem is not having a transgender child, but the family's complete buy-in to the mass media/ consumer culture of Barbies, Disney and meals at McDonald's, plus a social circle where mothers compete to stage elaborate parties for toddlers! Having a 3-year-old girl obsessed with princesses and fancy clothes would be equally alarming to a more aware parent.
